Matter is not lost per say, it is consumed and becomes part of the Black hole itself. A black hole itself is matter, matter which been compressed into such a small volume and high density that its gravity is inescapable. Some matter crossing the event horizon will be heated to such a high degree (due to the black hole's rotation) that it will releace light (mainly x-rays and gamma rays), but matter that makes it past the event horizon is ripped apart and becomes part of the singularity (the core of the black hole, so to speak).
